Gameboy 2MB 128KB SRAM Flash Cart

$27.00

This re-programmable Flash Cartridge allows you to play most Gameboy/Gameboy Colour games including Pokemon, Zelda, Wario Land, LSDJ, etc and allows you to re-flash it with any Flash cart programmer like GBxCart RW. It also allows for some MBC1 games (only on firmware R1, R1.1, R2) that don’t work properly on clone carts such as Super Mario Land 2, Donkey Kong Land 3, Megaman 5 to name a few.

This cart works on a Gameboy, GBA, GBC and GBP (it should work on a GBA SP too but I don’t have one to test with). Check the Game Compatibility tab on the left to see which games work and which ones don’t (for Firmware R1), if you would like us to test a game, please send a quick email to support@insidegadgets.com.

Comes in a generic grey Gameboy cartridge with our label. Each unit is assembled in house and is tested on a Gameboy Advance. You can supply the ROM file for us to flash the cart if you like, it will be tested for 20-30 seconds to ensure it works.

We usually ship within 2-3 business days and the usual delivery time is 2 to 4 weeks. This product can be back ordered, you’ll be provided with an ETA when more stock is expected, usually it’s 2-3 weeks.

We have different Firmware available (read more about the differences in the description):
MBC5/3/1 Hybrid (R1) – Default
MBC5/3/1 Hybrid + MBC1 2MB (R1.1)
MBC5 only (R1.2) – Lowest power consumption (best option if you will only ever use this cart for the latest versions of LSDJ which are MBC5)
Multi-Game Cart (R2) – Allows this cart to be a Multi-Game Cart when you run our loader software.

Once the firmware has been written, it can’t be changed unless you have the specific programming equipment (Altera USB Blaster). If you would like to change the firmware version, you can contact us and send the cart back to us for re-programming.

Description

Specs
ROM: 2MB Flash (AM29F016B)
SRAM: 128KB battery backed with a CR2025 (should last 5-10 years or more)
MBC: MBC5 (with some MBC1 support) emulated with a Altera CPLD
Note: Having some MBC1 support may break a few MBC5 games.

MBC5/3/1 Hybrid (R1):
MBC5 – Bank 0 gives bank 1 like in MBC1/3. Hybrid support for MBC1/3 games.
MBC1 support is limited to 512KB ROM / 8 KBytes RAM, it’s locked in “ROM Banking Mode” but without the 2MB ROM support.

MBC5/3/1 Hybrid + MBC1 2MB (R1.1):
Same as R1 but add the 2MB ROM support to the MBC1 implementation (only tested with 1 game).

MBC5 only (R1.2):
Implements MBC5 without any MBC3/1 detection.

Multi-Game Cart (R2):
Same as R1 but allows you to use the loader for Multi-Game support
Allows this cart to be a Multi-Game Cart when you run our loader software (check the Downloads tab on the left). It consumes 20mA more than R1 and about 10-20% of games run through the Multi-Game loader may not work. There are 2 loaders – one for Gameboy games and one for Gameboy Colour games; unfortunately you can’t mix games. You can still run the cart as a regular Flash cart. This loader doesn’t work on Gameboy Pocket but works on Gameboy Colour and Gameboy Advance.

The PCB finish is ENIG, Gold fingers (on the edge connector) with a 45 degree bevel to give the maximum life for insertion/removal of the cartridge.

This flash cart will take up additional current compared to a regular cartridge due to the CPLD so you will see a decrease in battery life; this is standard for CPLD based flash carts.

When you place an order, if you would like the flash cart to be programmed with a ROM, you need to supply it to us via email (you can reply to your order notification). It will be tested for 20-30 seconds on a Gameboy Advance to ensure it works, if it doesn’t work, we’ll contact you. If you don’t specify a ROM, it will be loaded with the LSDJ Demo.

Firmware – https://github.com/insidegadgets/Gameboy-MBC5-MBC1-Hybrid


Multi-Game Maker Software

Allows for multiple games on Firmware R2 only using this program: Multi-Game_Maker_v1.2. Simply drag and drop all your ROM files to this executable and it will make an output.gb file for you to write to the cart with.

There are 2 loaders – one for Gameboy games and one for Gameboy Colour games; unfortunately you can’t mix games.

You should only run 1 game that uses the SRAM for saves at a time, if you boot another game it will likely wipe parts of the SRAM.

Firmware R2 consumes 20mA more and about 10-20% of games run through the Multi-Game loader may not work. You can still run the cart as a regular Flash cart but once again it will consume 20mA more.

This loader doesn’t work on Gameboy or Gameboy Pocket systems but works on Gameboy Colour and Gameboy Advance systems.
